I can't log on to the internet via my router, my other computer(XP) can. There was a problem with a possible virus that my children isolated, but I think it was an integral part of the computer. It was kernel.dll and another was winsock? Before these were removed the connection was working properly. Can anyone help please, the kids are driving me mad to go on msn messenger :tazz:

yes, I know...what ones?

Are you using broadband or dial up (or both?)

I suppose it does not matter since this does not connect anyway, but I wanted to set you up so less is required to get you back up and running.
